Deputy Brian Etheridge was a young, enthusiastic deputy just beginning his career with the Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office in Wichita Kansas.  On a fall afternoon, while finishing up lunch with fellow deputies, Brian was dispatched to a past action larceny complaint.  What should have been a simple report taking call ended in Brian being ambushed and shot by the very person he responded to help. His shooting and the manhunt that followed left this community, agency, and his family with more questions than answers.  His actions likely saved the lives of several officers that day.   

There are several twists in this story right to the end, along with "the rest of the story" - how his amazing wife Sarah continues to mentor and give back to her law enforcement family that has supported her for over a decade. In her own incredible way she continues to serve in honor of Brian to ensure his sacrifice is never forgotten.    You'll find photos from this case on our website at  www.officerdownmemorialpodast.com
